Random Musings

- Am I the only one who uses way more conditioner than shampoo? If not then why isn't there more conditioner in a the bottle? I always run out of one before the other.

* Why are crib sheets so freaking impossible to change? Or any sheets for that matter?

 Why do people know more about what celebrity was caught kissing who or who is dating who in Hollywood than about politics or world issues???

+ Why do my coupons always expire the day before I go to use them?

= Is it just me or does it seem like all original thought has expired. Movies, music, tv show... remakes, redos and sequels. Have we really run out of all new ideas?

# Why do all movies seem to be geared towards people with below average IQ? Where are all the smart, witty movies for people who don't want to know the ending before it even begins.

> Am I a bad mother if I flat our refuse to watch Barney, Dora, the Wiggles or Blues Clues??? We watch Word World, Backyardigans and Sesame Street after all.

@ Why do people act like it is so freaking hard to recycle?

" How come the chores around the house that I hate the most are the ones that need to be done most often?

x Why can't someone make a diaper pail that really doesn't stink?

Ó What in the heck did we do with ourselves before cell phones and the internet???

Å Why must the radio station (even satellite) replay the same 25 songs over and over and over?

◊ Why does our media glorify the athletes, actors and other famous people who conduct themselves so poorly? Is that really who we want as our children's role models?

This was a great post, I have often wondered on many of those same things myself!

If you are a bad mother, then so am I, we don't watch Dora, Barney, Wiggles or Blue Clues either. Ariel loves Sesame Street, but we got her the old school set, the good stuff before Elmo took over the show. ;)

I always run out of shampoo before conditioner. Hmmmm...

And no Dora, Barney or Wiggles here. We do see Blues Clues periodically. *oops* But our TV viewing is mainly limited to Word World (love that show!), Sesame Street, you see a theme with PBS?

The same size bottles are a conspiracy of the shampoo companies :)

I'm serious though. Most people don't need to shampoo all that often, but they've got us convinced we need to shampoo every single day, when it's bad for your hair.

I have long, curly hair, and when not pregnant I shampoo once a week and condition every day. Of course, pregnancy makes my hair super greasy so I shampoo every other day.

But, also as a long hair who's obsessed with her hair quality, I strongly recommend Suave Naturals. It's like $2 and some of the best conditioner for your hair out there. Dimethicone, a common ingredient in conditioner, masks damage and allows split ends to get longer before you notice them. Suave doesn't use that, so your actual hair quality is better.

Also, hi! Longtime lurker.
